2014 Topps Chrome Box Break

I've been planning this for awhile, but now that we are finally getting close to the release date  (August 27th) I feel comfortable to announce it.

I already spilled the beans when I announced a spot was up for grabs in my latest contest. Of course, the first place winner might not necessarily choose the spot in the break, but I feel confident they will. 

Product Details 
  • 24 packs per box, 4 cards per pack (96 Total)
  • 2 Autographs per box (on average)
  • "Besides basic Refractors, randomly inserted in hobby packs are X-Fractors, Blue Refractors (#/199), Black Refractors (#/100), Sepia Refractors (#/75), Gold Refractors (#/50), Red Refractors (#/25), Atomic Refractors (#/10), Printing Plates and SuperFractors (1/1). Variation Short Prints featuring different photos are also randomly inserted." (Courtesy of Cardboard Connection)
There will be 14 spots available (I am giving one away and I am taking the Dodgers).

We will be busting 4 hobby boxes. Each slot will be $25 dollars and will get you the team of your choice AND a random team after all the spots have been filled. You will receive all the cards for both of your teams that are pulled. In the event a card with multiple players is pulled, the card will go to the person with the a) the most teams on the card; b) the player on the top (vertical); c) player on the left (horizontal). I have not figured out the exact details, but the break will be streamed live for those who want to watch me talk to myself and open packs for a couple hours. 

Shipping is included in the cost, but those outside the US will need to add on a couple of bucks for shipping. Feel free to message me individually for details on that front.

The sooner I can fill all 14 spots, the cheaper we can get the boxes for. If it takes a while to fill up the break, then I may need to adjust the price by a buck or two, but I will let everyone know before doing so. You can always help me out by pimping the break on your blog. Depending on how fast (or slow) the break fills up, I may be pushing for this later.
